A Handful of Flowers
by Kimberly Rae Jordan
This Christian romance novella of 34,000 words is the first book in The Callaghans & McFaddens series from author Kimberly Rae Jordan.
NOTE: This book is also part of the boxed set, Love Blossoms (ASIN: B01B0X44IE)
When Emily McFadden first met Steve Callaghan, her only goal had been to gain his permission for his son to come over to play with hers. When she realizes that he is in need of help caring for his four sons, she decides to see if he’d be interested in making a deal. She’d help him with his boys, and he’d help her with the repairs to her aging house. Steve makes it clear he’s not in the market for a wife which is just fine with her. She has her own reasons for not wanting to get involved romantically.
Steve has no interest in a relationship after having dealt with his ex-wife and her rejection of their boys. However, he finds himself drawn to Emily as she showers his boys with love in the same way she does with her own four children. But is it just gratitude or something more? Is it possible that God has a different plan for their families than what they’d thought they wanted?
Stayed tuned for the next Christian romance – A Change of Heart – in the The Callaghans & McFaddens series coming July 2016.
